What do you teach?
Students with additional needs in all age groups, with a lean towards math and science.
Why did you become a teacher?
I liked teenagers and was fascinated by the different ways people think and view the world.
How would your students describe you?
Compassionate with high standards, willing to turn any subject into an excuse to cook, and having a strange love of math.
What’s your favourite challenge to help students overcome?
Connections between math, science and the world. Solving the typical ‘Why do I have to learn this?’ problem and finding a personal reason for them to have an interest in it.
What’s your favourite way to spend an afternoon?
Going for a run or hike somewhere with hills!
